Treasure Island

Bri Edwards


'In-N-Out, Fast Food Stop........ [Waiting For A Ride At A Restaurant; Simple Pleasures; Unruly Kids In Public; A Bit Of Humor; SHORT]


Though my “love” says it’s a bad place to wait,
here I am with two milks. Only milk, no plate.

She doesn’t mean it’s a dangerous place; that she doesn’t mean.
The staff is courteous, the milk is good, and the place is surely clean.
So far, an unruly little boy is all I have to complain about.
If I had my way I’d give him a little swat, then I’d kick him OUT!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In-N-Out in san carlo california was where i chose to wait for a ride from an auto dealer shuttle vehicle to take me to the next town to retrieve my vehicle. there was a mix-up and i waited there a LONG time but enjoyed writing poetry, drinking milk, and watching people.

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
